Combobox: show items in full length for selection!

(Klaus Blass) #1

Often the options only differ at the end (which is truncated), this makes Combobox unusable in many important situations.
Example: list of economic activities, occupations, etc.

Good point, we will look at it.

An idea for implementation: use word wrap to show those characters that go beyond what’s currently shown in the UI.

Or use a modal popup picker like the Date is picked, for example. That would give much more space for the search box and the candidates list.

I think both are good ideas. Word wrap would work well. Already used for showing long option text in select questions.
Basically the list already is a pop-up. It could be widened to use the full screen width AND use word wrap where this is still not sufficient.
